What are my option to mask HSV on my lip?

Recommended Posts

Sideways

About a month a ago I kissed a girl and a week later sure enough a bump popped up on my upper lip. I was shook, went to the store as purchased a tube of abreva.  The next day the bump went away and o continued to monitor my lip obsessively. Sure enough a month later and my upper lip is starting to look crazy. I havent had a cold sore only little bumps. The abreva bring the bumps down and my lip is dark so it's hardto notice the bumps unless ur directly in my face. I'm so embarrassed and I have to go to work too  I'm hoping none of my coworkers notice until I can get to the doctor and maybe he can prescribe something to make this situation better. Truthfully since this has happen I haven't taken on and extra amount of stress. The past couple weeks have been literally the most stressful weeks of my life. So stressed that i run out of energy. On my days off I don't even want to leave my house. 

If I could some how disguise the bumps because I don't know if they will pop and Ozze like I seen in some of the google images I searched. Which is friggin terryifying in its own right.  The lesions have been there for over 2 weeks now , some day is more swollen than others. Monday I will go to the doctor office to see if he can prescribe me something. Any recommendation and what will happen to my lip and also what oitment/cream or medications i should be shooting for and also is there any chance I'm able to disguise this crap on my lip in order for me to go back to my regular life some how?

Amazon has this ointment called Lemon Balm Salve by Wise Ways something or other. It's very very good.

I haven't had a cold sore for a while, but I keep a tincture of lemon balm handy just in case.  You can find it at most health food stores.  I put a drop on my finger and then dab it on the spot.  It usually clears up quite quickly.

Lemon balm is inexpensive and also doubles as a tea to help you sleep.

Actually I purchased the same product from wise ways from Amazon earlier this week. It in facts makes my lip more glossy and the bumps are extremely noticeable . The abreva drys the bump out and shrinks it a lil bit , but I noticed that if the bumps are moist they are easier to notice, but thank u for ur input.

I'm gonna try the lemon balm liquid, the salve wasn't so great. Thanks

The liquid will likely have alcohol in it, which dries things out.  It may be damp for a few minutes after you apply it but it will quickly dry (and shrink the sore).

Not really.  Lemon balm is an easy to grow plant and is plentiful and there are many brands depending on your location.  If you go to a health food/health store you can always ask someone inside if there is a preferred brand.  In my opinion, for this type of product and the intended use, it won't really make a difference.

Ah yeah it does make it glossy.  Personally I started with the Super Lysine Plus ointment.  Then tried the Lemon Balm salve to find it work faster.

There is an internal remedy called Lysine Extra by Vitanica.   While topicals do their work from the outside in, superficially; Lysine Extra heals from the inside out.  It's a really good formula especially for oral HSV.

This doesn't sound like HSV at all!! The symptoms and timeline don't really make sense....Which is a good thing.

Did you have any flu-like symptoms? Do these bumps ever hurt? If the answer is no to both this just isn't HSV..Well, at least not a new infection.

See the doctor. Feel free to get his/her opinion. Feel free to get blood tested for HSV.

You'll be okay. Cheers

I have had no flu like symptoms and the bumps don't hurt. Also it's been about a month and nothing has flared up. I do have fatigue but that's from me stressing a lot about this and I do have one small white bump tucked almost underneath my upper lip, that doesn't seem to wanna go away. it's been about a month now and nothing is clearing up, they just shrink when I apply abreva. So I just been applying abreva 3 or 4 times a day to keep my lip looking somewhat normal, where I'm able to conceal whatever is going on.  Thank u for the advice , I do appreciate it. I will definitely get to the doc soon.

      @DJwah curious about your results. anything you can share?
    • HerpesOrNot
      Thanks. Did you experience general discomfort when urinating for quite a while after the excruciating part was done, or was it instantly over after the week with antivirals? 
    • HerpesOrNot
      Thanks for the response.  I have been tested for HSV over and over for 5 months (IgM 1 time and IgG over 5 times) and been negative on everything, including a swab of a red rash and of an irritated urethral opening.  My very first symptom of anything was VERY painful urination that lasted about a day or two if I recall, followed a week or so later by a sore throat, chills, night sweats, and fatigue.  Things settled for maybe a few days, then came an extremely itchy anus/rectum with redness for weeks, itchy groin with no redness at all, then eventual red, itchy rash in groin and increase in redness on penile skin with mild itching. Never had a lesion or blister anywhere from what I've seen. Nothing seems to coincide with typical herpes, but herpes isn't always typical from what I've learned. Creams of all kinds from doctors are not helping at all.  I seem to have a new bug no one has ever come across (doubtful), or an atypical case of herpes or something similar.

      No, Sebi was a fraud. This article is an interesting summary. https://www.thebody.com/article/dr-sebi-did-not-cure-hiv-nipsey-hussle-documentary If you’re basing the possibility of ‘cures’ on Sebi, I’ve got a car for sale that’s had one careful lady driver! Its simply fact that of the 40 billion people who have ever had HSV 1/2, not one eradicated it from their body.

      I'm amazed people do not think outside the box and to go to great efforts to reply to me saying "it's not curable" I simply cannot understand. If you truly believe Western Medicine and they say it's not curable then whatever they claim in the future you will live your life with their scientific proof. I simply have posted here to hear from like minded people who are juicing and doing colonics to see what their results are. People who have had cancer have cured it with a alternative lifestyle becoming vegan etc so if cancer is cureable who can't you open your mind and just think could hsv be curable? did you know Dr Sebi was taken to court because he claimed he cured someone with Aids? He turned up with 25 people who he cured of all illnesses and was let off. So please spare me your thought's of "It's not curable" as I will never belive that. Unless you have some experiences with juicing and colonics you wish to share then do not comment on this thread. Will no longer reply to closed minded sad people like yourselves.
